What a shame that staff with poor attitude should ruin a fabulous day in an amazing location. We are a group of seven, we had been visiting Cortona and it was just on 6pm. Everyone was tired and in need of refreshments before a long drive home. The young lady at this establishment was so rude we should have just got up and left.....however, we persevered. The service and attitude did not improve. Pity though as the location (right on the piazza) was perfect to sit and catch your breath. Drinks were slow to arrive, my coffee was almost an iced coffee (I ordered cappuccino) the nibbles were just that - barely enough for the group.
The toilets were at the back of the cafe - dirty, no toilet seat, no paper towels.
This is in Cortona people - one of the most beautiful towns in Italy.
There is choice - go somewhere else.

Bar La Posta is a great spot for your morning cafe or your afternoon apertivo ...the atmosphere is warm and casual. Ask for Simone Lucci; he's a friendly and charming guy, who makes you feel very welcome. Laid back and welcoming ...make sure you go there a couple of times while you're in Cortona!

La posta has everything. It has the great location in the centre of Cortona, delicious food at a decent price and very friendly bar staff, Simone Lucci in particular. Great atmosphere all round!

The restaurant was quaint and very nice. The waiter, Simone Lucci was friendly and speaks English very well. The service was excellent and friendly. The food is home made and exquisite. They have very good selection of wines, and olive oils in the back. This place is an absolute must for the average tourist that wants to feel welcome and have some local fun in the town of Cortona.

This is a nice little cafe on the piazza, which serves up excellent coffee and tasty food. The walls are filled with fascinating photos illustrating this cafe's interesting past. Good spot to stop and catch up on your people watching.
